I have done extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Gottman Method and studied what builds healthy relationships, and how having our emotional needs met and understood by others builds self confidence and leads to positive change in all other areas of our lives.
I believe that healthy and fulfilling relationships are the beginning to change in all other areas of life. My goal is for us to understand the core struggles you are facing, and to provide you with proven tools that lead to change in yourself and in the relationships that matter the most. If you struggle with depression, anxiety, loneliness, anger, or substance addiction, understanding and changing patterns is the beginning to healing. I have created a safe, accepting place for you to discuss what is happening in your life so that together we can work to make the changes you desire to see so that your life feels better.

I help people who intuitively have compassion for others to have compassion for themselves. Though I welcome clients of all cultural backgrounds and identities, I specialize in bi+ affirming therapy for bisexual, pansexual, sexually-fluid, and bi-curious (collectively "bi+") people of all genders. No matter what brings you to therapy, as your therapist I hold space for you with an understanding of bi+ culture, the identity dynamics that come along with living these identities, and the prejudicial misconceptions and biphobia that can leave you feeling excluded or invisible in both queer and straight spaces.

Working with couples I favor Emotionally Focused Therapy which brings positive results in a brief amount of time.
I see the therapeutic journey as a process rather than a destination. As such, every experience--whether "good" or "bad" is useful for one's transformation. With this as our pole star, life can again become exciting and spontaneous and can overflow with vitality; one regains authorship of one's own life--true creativity. Therapy should aid in the lifting of depression so that one one can rejoin the flow of one's life. It should begin to infuse the smallest moments with meaning while equipping and empowering one with practical tools to carry on this work beyond the therapeutic hour.

My work with couples integrates Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and the Gottman Method.
I work with individuals, couples, parents, and families from diverse backgrounds. I am passionate about helping clients decrease emotional distress in their lives in order to restore purpose and connection. I believe change is possible when people feel safe to explore their values, hopes, dreams, commitments, and purpose, as well as their disappointments and hurts. I aim to help clients "slow down," encouraging reflection and insight, and the development of healthy coping strategies to create sustainable change. My stance is curious and flexible reflecting my belief that clients are the experts on their lives.

My approach is a combination of Gottman and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I work with people individually, and in relationships that struggle to effectively communicate their needs. Because of how they were brought up, or conditioned through experience, they might have vastly different ways of showing up in relationships, especially through conflict. We all want to work on what drives our behavior so that we can better understand ourselves and each other. This allows us to be vulnerable with one another and experience our real selves, so we can connect and love one another on a much deeper and more meaningful level.

In our lives, there are a number of experiences that lead to feeling alienated and disconnected from your body, your relationships to others, and a sense of meaning and worth. I hope to support you in returning home to yourself in all your complexities. I believe in leaning into discomfort in an effort to uncover the wisdom behind the strategies used to cope. It is through this learning that you can gain the tools to shift in a way that brings you to a place of greater abundance, connection, and radical self-love.

Do you feel like you're maintaining or surviving, rather than thriving? Maybe you're not sure what the next step is, but you know you want to feel less stress, anxiety, and fear and more peace, joy, and confidence. I believe that many distressing feelings are often responses to a world that tries to tell us who we are and who we should be, through inherited belief systems, culture, relationships, experiences of trauma, and systems of oppression. I love working w/ people to reveal what those stories are, the meanings you've held in them, and how to discover and make space for the self inside you that felt small, boxed in, or stuck.

I believe therapy should be a normal part of life and accessible to all. We all experience challenges and need help from time to time. Taking care of our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health. My role in therapy is a coach, consultant and collaborator. It is important to build on your strengths because it enables you to change from a place of empowerment. To me, the goal of counseling is to gain insight through reflection, and to build concrete skills so that when future challenges arise, you are better prepared.

I specialize in supporting families and couples who are struggling to communicate effectively. This may look like every conversation turning into a fight, no longer being able to understand or relate to the other person's point of view, behavior challenges with children, or feeling completely exhausted by being stuck in a pattern together. I help guide families and couples back to mutual understanding, in working through and resolving conflicts, and in addressing how behaviors affect one another.

I work with individuals and with non-traditional relationships including polyamory, ethical non-monogamy and I have over 20 years of experience serving the QUILTBAG (queer or questioning, undecided, intersex, lesbian, trans, bisexual, asexual or allied, gay or gender diverse). I don't name issues and disorders because labels are important to the people who pay the bills. Help, Support, and Knowledge from a person willing to stand with you when life is becoming hard and solutions aren't easy to see are more important then any diagnostic name or code for what ails you.

Hi! I'm Gemma. I'm a trained relational psychodynamic psychotherapist who works with individuals, couples, and family members. I am curious about the unconscious mind and look forward to exploring with you the impact of your past experiences on your present day life. I spent the first part of my career as a therapist in community mental health working with LGBTQ-identified folks, and have significant experience working with complex PTSD, anxiety and panic disorders, self-harm, and chronically low self-esteem. I operate from an anti-oppression lens and will consider systems of oppression and privilege in our work together.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Capitol Hill, Seattle Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
